Thank you Carolyn, I could put them to good use.

Merry Christmas to everyone - lovely morning at Indigiscapes. Little pity that we couldn't roam around due to the other party, but what a beautiful day to be out and about in such a pleasant place.

Delightful day, top spot! We even had free entertainment courtesy of a big party out of sight but not out of earshot. We all bought some native plants from the on-site Nursery. Indigiscapes is a well designed space for plants, people, wildlife, a cafe and shop and a real credit to Redlands Council and the many volunteers who make it all possible. We had a lovely brunch and plenty of talk and some pix (hint, hint: hope I wasn't pulling a stupid face this time).

Best wishes to you all for the festive season and beyond :-)

Was great to catch up with everyone.  Have a great Christmas and hope everyone gets lots of gardening goodies in their santa sack.

Bit late to ask - but does anyone want some Jicama seedlings? or Egyptian Spinach seedlings?

Probably won't bring too much today unless asked.

Donna, sorry really wanted to come tomorrow. But I've been heaping Lucerne bales all morning & am half dead. Plus I committed to a Permablitz event on Sunday.
Enjoy yourselves. Will see you all in the new year.

If your tree is producing then I guess it makes both.  I'll try one.  Never tasted the fruit though, is it as good as it sounds?  Will have to keep it pruned short too.  Sounds like they get quite tall.

I've only ever came across one source which mentioned they can have separate male and female plants, but supposedly male plants are quite rare if I remember correctly.  I can't find it any where at the moment, but every where else only mentioned they're propagated by seeds.. and I guess if you find someone with a producing tree, you could always try grafting ~  I'll pot two up for you if you want to try ~
